Madison had thin veins, and maybe 30% of the time they'd chase her vein around when giving her an IV or drawing blood. It was easy for me -not- to be impatient with the newbie poking me because among other things, Madison taught me patience... I remember far too many times a nurse poking Madison and her levels or patience, grace, and understanding.
No now I'm gowned-up and the doctor comes in, does the usual stuff. As he's putting on a rubber glove and greasing his finger, I know what's coming... a prostate check. I told the doctor if he plans on traveling south (my butt), we're going to need a safe word. He says "pardon me", and I say never mind.
He asks me to lie on my right side and pull my left butt cheek up, then in goes his finger. Of course I say NAUGAHIDE.
I was surprised how hard he laughed.
